Humble Indie Scramble

ArtbegottiWe've finally made it to the final day of the Humble Indie Scramble! Over the past week we've given away several Humble Indie Bundles to competitors who have the wits to unscramble a medley of anagrammed game titles and the good fortune to win a random drawing. We hope you've had as much fun participating as we have had making the puzzles (except yesterday, that puzzle was just a pain to come up with). Even if you're just joining us today, you can still jump in the game (a quick review of the rules and a sample puzzle).

We've promised some tricky twists for the big finale, and today, we're ready to deliver. To start off, you're not trying to split just three game titles from the anagram, but today you're playing with five games. To up the difficulty, the clues for all of the games can describe at least two games, so some trial-and-error might be necessary to find the right answers. However, to celebrate the final day of our game, we will give away three Bundles of Humble Indie deliciousness, one each to three lucky entrants. We've cranked up the difficulty, but we've also increased your chances of winning!

Here's your final Humble Indie Scramble:

MONTHS FLY FONT, GAME HYMN TESTIMONIAL: A SHARP ONE CAN FIGURE THE HUMBLE INDIE SCRAMBLE

  • Game involving hexagonal tiles

  • Foreign card game

  • Game where you utilize clones of yourself

  • Match-3 game involving animals

  • Game where you slide rooms into different configurations

Think you know the answer? Send the five game titles to us, along with a statement that you are at least 13 years of age, to: JIGriddle@casualgameplay.com. Only one entry per person per puzzle, please. Multiple entries will be disqualified. This contest is open to everyone 13 years of age or older, void where prohibited. The winner will be drawn at random from all correct entries received. You have only until tomorrow, January 1st, 2011 at 06:00 PM (GMT -5:00), so hurry!

Thanks to everyone who has participated in our lexicon luau! From all of us here at JIG and Casual Gameplay, Have a safe and happy new year!

Update: Far fewer of you sent in correct answers to our finale puzzle, but we did get enough right answers to award prizes! Congratulations to the following players: bluemoose19, danman02, and Chaos! Your correct entries were chosen at random to receive a Humble Indie Bundle!

Answers to the riddle above:

Our sincere thanks to everyone who participated and played with us this past week. You can be sure we'll do more riddle contests like this throughout 2011!

This should be fun to figure out. It looks harder only because the clues are less specific. Like it says, I can think of multiple games that fit each description.

"We've cranked up the difficulty, but we've also increased your chances of winning!"
Wouldn't the first thing also imply the second thing?(if you crank up the difficulty, you also increase the chance of winning since less people can finish)

Either way, looks fun. Anyway, happy new year!

The fourth hint is killing me. Why is there no Z?

Almost done, but I can't find the last one. If I put it in there's still letters left. AAugh!

I've been over the puzzle several times. There are multiple games that fit the clues, and, in addition, the names of each of the games just happen to fit into the anagram. What's up with that?!

After some tedious deduction, and a great deal of hard thinking, I've got it! All it took was taking a short break and completely rethinking the puzzle and starting from scratch.

Great contest while it lasted! Happy 2011!

Way too lazy for this one. Good luck, people who don't already have it! :P

After hours of searching, I finally did it.
Would it be possible to have contests like these in the future? And to send email confirmation to the people who sent responses? I'm not sure if I entered correctly.

Also, Happy New Year!

FINALLY GOT IT! This one took me about five hours and quite a few frustrated attempting-to-bash-my-monitor-ins. I hope I can get it this time!
